HC Deb 09 December 1942 vol 385 c1537
3. Sir Robert Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will instruct the Consular Service in the Argentine Republic to furnish a report in respect to the financial position of the British-owned Argentine railways, in which £250,000,000 of. British capital is invested; and whether he will arrange for a copy of that report to be placed in the Library?

The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. Eden)

The companies concerned are all registered in this country, and the material necessary for a full understanding of their financial position is already available in London. In the circumstances I do not propose to adopt my hon. Friend's suggestion.
